, john boehner and we all supported the president in it, if it would say $4 trillion over 10 years in deficit reduction. the president agreed to it and the republicans walked away from it. >> rose: well, here is bob woodward's book. >> but i don't believe that, i n't think that is right, i was there. >> rose: you think bob woodward's book is right. >> i read the book my understanding of the book is that he said we will -- both side the speaker, the president bears more responsibility. i was there. the president agreed to the grand bargain and the republicans walked away from it. >> rose: the book says and what others have said is that there was a bargain and then the speaker, when the president came back and said i need more on the revenue side, then the president said -- >> no, no. >> rose: have to deliver more revenue. >> thank you for asking because clearly there is a ned for clarification. president came to harry reid and to me, we were there together, he said i am not going to be able to get anymore revenue, apart from the assumption that the high end tax cuts will expire, ass
. there are a maneuvering, looking for opportunities for they can become the pivotal players on bills. john boehner is clinton need their vote to pass again. how do you do that? doesn't render the and services less powerful? >> we do not know. we can say they think might happen. there have been a number of locations where the house republican congress has been united, passing good legislation that conservative support it. that made sense for taxpayers all over the session. you will see that again. they can speculate all they want. our job is to push policy in the direction we can. when we have been most united is will we have put forward good conservative principles, but policy and legislation. you will see more of that as we move into the next congress. >> can i ask you about the attacks and libya against the ambassador there? there is a hearing held this past week. the "washington post" noted house republican tax cut spending for embassy security by 128 million. and that under paul ryan's budget an additional 400 million would be cut to embassy security. was that wrong to do in hindsight? >> what
detail to interview president obama and speaker boehner and the key players in this. i just want to take one quick snapshot from what happened that we didn't know about, which is critical. when the cops pull up less when the president was upset, he called the congressional leaders on a saturday morning at 11:00 o'clock a.m. the democratic and republican leaders were trying to work out their own deal. harry reid, the democratic leader, said to the president, mr. president, could you please leave the room? i have covered presidents for four years. i know of no other time where the president was asked the meeting in his own house that he had called. i asked the president about this. i said how did it feel to be voted off the island in your own house. because that is what happened. he said that he was not going to stand on protocol, that the problem needed to be solved. but in the next day, he called democratic leaders to the white house from 6:00 o'clock on a sunday night. and harry reid is there, the house leader, the relations between and among the democrats are so not solved, that harry
that criticism is fair, but i think some blame lays on the shoulders of john boehner and his ability to corral his own folks. and that's where it comes back to the republican family table and whether they can sit down and agree to certain things. >> well, there's no question boehner has the hardest job in washington. and as i've written about and chronicled at length, he and the president, you know, came a long way toward finding an agreement on some of these fiscal issues that are going to paralyze washington again at the end of the year. and the good news is they still have that piece of paper in each of their desks which gets them 75% or 80% towards at least a framework which is all you're going to be able to pass anyway. it is boehner who shoulders at least as much responsibility, the speaker has to figure out how to bring along more of his caucus. and, you know, should they lose this presidential race, my guess is he would have a little more leverage in that regard. but that could go either way. >> thank you to "the new york times'" magazine's matt bai, a great piece. >> i saw hugo tellin
coming back. it's passed in the senate and boehner won't bring it up in the house. the obama campaign is out today with a new ad about a campaign stop mitt romney made in ohio. i want to get your reaction to it. here it is. >> the coal miners in these ads, turns out they were told that attendance at mitt romney's rally was, quote, mandatory. their mine was closed, lost the pay they needed. all to be prop ped in romney's commercial. >> employees feel they were forced to go. they had to take the day off without pay. they had a roll call. they they had a list of who was there and who wasn't. they felt they wouldn't have a job if they didn't go. >> on one hand, the business model is to outsource the jobs. when you have a chance to use the workers in a commercial, your thoughts on this? >> no surprise. the same stuff. i go back. if mitt romney would pick up the phone and call john boehner, join our effort, we're putting pressure on boehner to pass this. 20 senators have signed a letter. come to our grass roots. put pressure on boehner. we'll schedule this trade enforcement legislation for
to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. >> republican speaker john boehner fired back today the president has failed to sit down with him for months. >> delaying any plan to halt both the massive defensive spending cut and increase to bush tax rate coming at the end of the year. >> no leadership when it comes to the fiscal cliff we'll face. tax rate going up january 1. sequester on january 2. or need to increase debt limit in middle of february. president has been awol. campaigning since a year ago labor day. >> with the president enjoying a pretty light schedule in new york, that included a fundraiser and taping of the daily show with jon stewart, romney's campaign seized on boehner's commentbes to charge the president is going to let the economy sink in another recession. spokesman williams saying rather than work in bipartisan matter as the fiscal cliff approaches, president obama prefers to issue veto threat and ignore the other party. we can't afford four more years of the failed leadership. white house spokesman jay carney told republicans the obstacle is the refusal t

john boehner said . . . so do you think that baner is bluffing? >> you talk about human behavior, and that includes individual not always strong humans like john boehner. we have a couple of possibilities here let's face it. one we end up with something like the status quo. then they are going to have to deal with obama for the next four years, and the numbers don't make a huge difference. there is more of an incent dividend to cut a deal or at least say we're going to put it all often for a couple of months. but if romney wins they are going to say why should becut a deal with a lame duck president? let's wait until january. so the likelihood of a deal depends very much on the outcome of the election. >> jennifer: totally. but how can you get a deal, whether you are mitt romney or barack obama -- how can you get a deal with people who have signed the grover norquist pledge to never raise taxes? >> and how many have signed it. [ overlapping speakers ] >> yes, exactly. so the answer is -- you already had a number of senate republicans who indicated that they
. john boehner said i'm not sure if it's the right thing to do. having a lot of retiring members and defeated members votes on really big bills. what is the right thing to do? expect another short-term duct tape fix. no wonder the congressional approval rating is a dismal 13%. let's start there. what about the morality? my feeling is, one, you should do everything in your power to avoid a lame duck. i was talking to a house republican this morning in d.c. who said if congress did everything right in the first 22 months, they wouldn't have to rely on the last two to get stuff done. it's a real failure of leadership, part of the president and both houses. republicans and democrats that were in the spot now. however, i'm going to slightly disagree with the speaker. i think these guys should absolutely vote in the lame duck. i reject the premise that somehow because they're on their way out they don't have special interests, and somehow that makes them different from when they were elected. we elected them because we want them to be subjective, not objective. because we want their pa
is the structure situation has changed. >> do you think he is more likely to be with speaker boehner are? or would it be with cantor? >> i do not know the answer. all i know is that to date, the ryan budget approach has been a totally uncompromising approach. and to that extent, it is been very different then were the speaker appears to be willing to go and discuss. and i do not know if we expect any common kenneth after election conversions. >> if i can ask about the gang of eight. what are the odds of that coming up as some kind of compromise? >> i want to salute them for their efforts. they have been working hard to come together on these issues. and there are some indications that the republican and democratic leaders in the senate -- at least have got one who is engaged in the process. after the election, you are obviously going to see a lot greater involvement from the president. in terms of a post-election. as well as from the house and senate leadership in both parties. if they have got some ideas that have been ready made, i think people would be interested in looking at them, but i think
of public policy sending angry letters to president obama and house speaker john boehner, asking why neither of them met to discuss the fiscal cliff. she's up next. also ahead and this is no joke, yacht owners receive millions in dollars in tax breaks and lawmakers can't figure out a way to sink them. >>> then what does the head of one of apple's biggest suppliers think? we'll talk about the economy and fiscal cliff. keep it here. back in a moment. gecko (clearing throat) thank you, mr. speaker, uh, members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties! with cake! and presents! ah, that was good. too bad nobody could hear me. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. i'm an expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising
and speaker john boehner failed to seal a fiscal deal in the summer of 2011. how is obama going to change that pattern in the second term, is the question i put to you, sir? he had the chance to do a big deal with tough choses, with things like mortgage interest deduction. he didn't do it. >> erin, as you know, simpson/bowles both said this, the president takes the balanced approach they recommend. in other words, every credible bipartisan group, including simpson bowls has said if we're going to tackle this deficit and debt, we've got to make some tough cuts and we did $1 trillion in cuts last year, but we also need to deal with revenue. the president's plan actually gets a lot closer to the simpson/bowles ratios than anything that mitt romney has put on the table, because he has refused to -- he says he wouldn't even take $10 in cuts to $1 in revenue. he wants to protect those tax breaks for very high-income individuals, like himself. that's his plan. but it -- it totally busts the deficit and the debts, according to the committee for responsible federal budget. >> all right. thank you
the obama administration's conflicting stories on the benghazi terror attack. house speaker john boehner sending president obama a letter demanding answers. the president says the investigation will involve some soul searching. >> when four americans are killed you have to do soul searching in terms of making sure all of our systems are where they need to be. that is what we are going to find out. >> leon pineda is saying there wasn't enough real time information. the date stepped evidence says there was. >> what appears to be another insider attack in afghanistan. a taliban infiltrate tore shot yesterday before escaping and joining insurgents. they are trying to say if he is a member of afghan forces or was just wearing a uniform. >> a>> it's about the worst you can hear or image. >> marine awe crim returned to her apartment with her 3-year-old daughter the mom found her 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old daughter found in a bathtub. the kid's nanny stabbed them and turned the knife on herself. neighbors say the mother's scream could be heard through out the building. he was notified wh
are mainstream protestants. >> neither jongh boehner or harry reid of the presidential candidates -- and barack obama whose -- what i'm saying is it is an extraordinary openness. >> we talk about it a lot. you know, i liked it when i was a kid. we didn't talk about a whole lot. we talk a lot about that person is that and this person is this and we pretend that we are tolerant. i like it when people didn't care. i was catholic. you talk about a minority i was a black catholic in savannah georgia that is an insular -- i was the only black kid in my seminary, 1965, 64 there was another young man. he left and the next two years i was here by myself in savannah. they identify a lot more. i kind of like the idea that when it started you and i are here. neither one of us is caucasian and nobody seems to care. you look like your indian descent to the to -- i'm just a little doubtful i should say. but here we are. i think what you should be more concerned about this none of that seems to be more relevant than the face people are but even with that, even if we can nitpick all of that, these are good peop
, jonathan, let me bring you in. house speaker john boehner and eric cantor issued statements credit sidesiiticizing the numb. they didn't go further than that. is there a perception out that the conservatives and republicans if they don't tick up, especially the unemployment rate specifically they're seen rooting against the economy in some ways because you celebrate if it went up to 8.2% to 8.3% by saying, see, further proof the obama administration is is messing up the economy further as opposed to saying let's look at both sides as john pointed out. unemployment has ticked down, but we have a battle here in a stalled or stagnant position? it seems to some people that the republicans are rooting for disaster in hopes of being able to win the coveted prize of the white house. >> i think everybody wants to see the economy grow. i think everybody wants to see a real true robust jobs growth. that's not what we saw in the report. that's the issue here. you know, the unemployment rate may have ticked down but the jobs growth was anemianemic. we'd love jobs to be created and it's not hap
. that recognizes john boehner as a willing partner to sit down and negotiate. i hope that he is able to say, look, we are not going to do that again. i recognize boehner, i can bring john boehner along instead of just voting for my son. that is not very persuasive. that is where we are where we are. >> got close to the president and the conference couldn't get there. we have work to do, pete, we really do in moving beyond the rhetoric. hopefully the election will make absolutely clear what the american people are hoping for us to do in the way we fiscal the fiscal cliff at the end of the year and the future tax reform. >> thank you both for joining us. >> thank you. [applause] >> let's talk about what can be done. >> sure, there is a lot that can be done. it's time to get it done. we in march of this year, the c.e.o.s of the business roundtable put our plan for action of america, a c.e.o. plan for jobs and economic growth. the plan is still good. the taking action part, well, we're still waiting. what can be done in the short term and we looked at the lame duck history. it's pretty dismal going b
bargain talks with speaker boehner that's something john boehner would go for. look, john boehner and barack obama both do not want their legacies to be just years in this case would be four years of inaction between 2010 and 2014. i think there is some im pe tus to get it done. again, i can't tell you the big issue here enough, the $250,000 tax cuts, which side is going to blink first on the game of chicken. even if president obama is not re-ele re-elected, it wouldn't surprise me if he let them all expire, all coupled together in the name of deficit reduction because it would be hard to make them law again because anything that adds to deficit cannot be passed with reconciliation and won't have a 60 feet majority in the senate. the 250 k number is the ball game. >> luke russert, our eyewitness to the high stakes game of chicken that is occurring and will continue to occur in the lame-duck session of congress. >> tastes like chicken, my friend. >> thank you as always for the intel. >> be well. >> governor romney claims that u.s. used to promote free enterprise around the world an
'm wash john boehner's car. i'll watch mitch mcconnell's dog. i will do whatever is required to get this done. >> mike, in your considered opinion how is that goss to go down with messrs. boehner and mcconnell. >> reporter: this just in, mitch mb konl doesn't have a dog. they'll have to work out something different in that personal services contract the president is ready to offer the speaker and the senate majority leader. people are actually starting to get very nervous about that. you may have seen a press conference with ceos and everybody on down saying this could have catastrophic effects. the president says i'll walk mcconnell's dog, wash john boehner's car. both of those individuals are driven around by the u.s. capitol police's finest wherever they are. so they're going to have to get something done. another interesting point here, there was another interview, i heard you just talking about this interview with "rolling stone" and what the president said about mitt romney being a quote, unquote bser, we use the term advisedly. he was asked about that, he said it was a casual
of the eric a cantors and, and the john boehners? and the right -- extreme right wing of his party that will force him to do stuff as present that he now says he's not going to do because hats in a general election campaign? a person who doesn't have a core, it strikes me, is susceptible to the same kind of pressure once in office, as when he was running to appeal to his base in the first place. >> but there isn underlying e tendency here that's recognizable. bara obama opposed a mandate in order to distinguish himself from hillary clinton. he has a mandate in his affordable care act. there's always some movement toward the center in governance, as well as a move toward the center toward the general election because of the nature of the two party system a the nature of divided governance. >> i'm not sure i would call what happened in the last couple of years a movement toward the center. i thi of it as obama negotiating with himself with an intransigent right which used a its power to hold the country hostage, rather than finding common ground. >> so, let's talk about what you did
promises to wash john boehner's car and walk mitch mcconnell's dog. turns out mitch mcconnell doesn't have a dog, in order to get something done to avoid that fiscal cliff everyone is predicting economic catastrophe. meanwhile, an nbc affiliate out of denver talked about some of the themes that he's working on and hitting mitt romney with. >> i fought for middle-class families in colorado and all across the country. that's the kind of president i think you want. and i'm looking forward to having the privilege of serving another four years. a lot of it is going to depend on colorado so i hope everybody takes advantage of early vote in colorado. you guys are always ahead of the curve when it comes to voting. >> nine interviews yesterday, the president did. he was in washington, but he headed down to dnc. radio interviews with our friend michael smerconish and others around the country. >> mike viqueira, get your track shoes on. joining me now, white house correspondent for the hill amie parnes, and steve selma. good morning. >> hi, good morning. >> amie i'm going to begin with you because we
